Real Dreams

In my dream I did 50 pressups,
I still don’t remember why,

But I also stole a ferry,
And sank it after it got hit by torpedoes;

Land was in sight,
As we were crossing the Channel,
But then I noticed a lot of ships around us,
And most of them were upending and sinking!

We tried to keep going,
Hoping they wouldn’t noticeโ€ฆ
But sure enough, we were hit,
And had to abandon ship!

Then we began the long swim to shore,
(This part was very lucid and conscious),
I had to deal with the moral quandary in which I found myselfโ€”
What can I really do for the not-so-strong swimmers, so far from shore?
Could I even make it?

Of course, I was the first to reach it ๐Ÿ˜,
And I immediately headed back out,
To help those who would otherwise almost make it;

Then I went around looking for my friend,
Who had been second-in-command,
He was nowhere to be seen,
And that was the end!

It was good to have a nice dream again for once! ๐Ÿ˜„

Yes, I’m aware of the obvious potential interpretations,
But I don’t believe in such mystic nonsensry.

For the record, these would be:

  1. Stealing ships generally gets you into trouble.
  2. Although on the face of it your action seemed reckless, you probably saved a bunch of comrades from the French invasion.
  3. Don’t be afraid to/You need to help yourself before helping others ๐Ÿคฎ.
  4. Be kind to yourself.
  5. Always be ready for a long swim to shore ๐Ÿ˜‰.
  6. Although it may at first seem a hopeless task, you’ll get there in the end.
  7. We may lose friends along the way, but make new ones who are better swimmers anyway ๐Ÿ˜†.
  8. *cough* natural selection *cough* ๐Ÿ™„.
  9. You have hero syndrome.

Weirdly, number 7 has been true!

    1. Well, I didn’t at first remember the dream, it just came back to me later in the day ๐Ÿ˜†. I was seeing it as an interesting thing, not viewing it as good or bad :).


      1. Then I was pre-empting possible reading into it by other people, and having fun with it, haha.


      2. Cool. How do you know when you dreamt but can’t recall it though? ๐Ÿ˜€

        I seem to have a good dream memory, I can remember a few different dreams in a row, even when I don’t remember waking up.
